Chaparral Road

Chaparral Road runs from State Highway 195 to Farm-to-Market 3481.

Killeen is one of four entities that would contribute $24 million to improving the road to the new high school, and the council may vote Tuesday on whether to spend $3.5 million on the project.

The city has a backlog of neighborhood and other streets that need repairs and in August, a fee to pay for them was tacked on to residents’ and businesses’ monthly water bills.

The math doesn't add up on this project.

Projected cost $24M - $13.8M (KTMPO grant) - $3M (Bell County contribution) - $.275M (Heights contribution) - $3.5M (expected Killeen portion) still leaves about a $3.5M shortfall. Where's that money coming from?

By law, school bond money can't be used for roads not on school property. And the KTMPO money ain't a sure thing either.
